Hijab wearing student barred from taking exam in Montreal

SHARE

SHAFAQNA- A Montreal junior college is trying to determine how to accommodate a student who was prevented from taking an exam because she wouldn’t temporarily remove part of her hijab, a school spokeswoman said Monday.

The young woman was asked by her male biology teacher two weeks ago to pull back part of her Islamic headscarf so he could see weather she was wearing headphones, said Line Legare with College de Maisonneuve.

Presently, the school is in a discussion with the student to finalise a date for her to complete her tests.
